Rolling Stones Discuss Preparations For Upcoming Tour

(hennemusic) With just over a week away from opening night in Los Angeles, The Rolling Stones are talking about their "50 & Counting" tour in a new video interview with Radio.com.

"I thought that we should continue doing this when the 50th anniversary came up," admits Mick Jagger of the plans to schedule the 2013 shows. "I kept hedging when people asked me, but I knew, the year before."

"Personally, I start preparing about two months before the tour starts," he continued. "So I have to up my fitness level, I have to start singing every day, doing practices and a bit of dancing. I practice in front of mirrors if I can, in a dance studio."

"The process we go through for a tour is 6 weeks of rehearsal," says drummer Charlie Watts, "to have twice as many numbers ready to play and to be twice as fit as you need to be for 2 hours [of live performance]." more on this story
